Joan Jordi Oliver | ESP | *1994
SIBJA Saxophone Quartet | Baritonsaxofon
Joan Jordi Oliver is a saxophonist, composer-performer and improviser from Spain based in Zurich. Unsatisfied with the traditional profile of the saxophonist and in permanent search of a very personal voice, his musical practices merge performance, composition, improvisation and electroacoustic and multimedia elements into a very eclectic but individual musical expression. Mainly focused on the music of newest creation and on the performance of his own music, his principal interests are the exploration of his instrument and the relationship between art and technology.
An intense activity as a solo performer and as chamber musician has brought him to concert halls all over Europe, the United States, Canada and Asia. Involved in several collaborations devoted to new and experimental music, he performs actively as the saxophonist of the group y-band and as the live electronics performer of the Swiss band Menschenstoff among others.
Joan Jordi Oliver holds a Bachelor Degree in Saxophone Performance from the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Aragón) and a Master Degree in Saxophone Performance from the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste where he is currently completing his training with a Master in Electroacoustic Composition.
